Creston Area Library and Cultural Center

  • On August 7, 2016, our library board of trustees, with vital assistance from a Capital Campaign Committee consisting of outstanding volunteers, formally launched our efforts to raise $1.9 million in the Creston area for the purpose of transforming the Gibson Memorial Library into the Creston Area Library and Cultural Center. With support from over a dozen area civic groups, our building plan doubles the size of the Gibson Memorial Library, providing much-needed space for children's programming, public meetings, cultural events and new library materials. We are the only public library in Union County, with a focus on keeping our citizens digitally connected to the world around them, while continuing to provide traditional library services with an emphasis on the interests of our patrons.
